Touring with a private guide is the best way to see the Black Forest. A local tour guide (often myself) will show you the area. You get the local insights and don’t have to worry or read up about anything – we take care of it all. Guided tours usually start at your hotel in town or at the train station. We then head into the Black Forest to see and do the things you want to see and do. The guided tour will be custom-designed for you – by me. No tour is like another.

Can’t I tour the Black Forest on my own?
Do-it-yourself touring of The Black Forest is not easy. While The Black Forest is one of Germany’s biggest holiday region, English is not widely spoken. Even many popular tourist attractions do not offer English instructions or explanations. The target audience is German.
You may have tried piecing together destinations mentioned online, using a GPS to get from point to point in a rental car, only to find, just like a fine meal – just because you bought all the mentioned ingredients, it doesn’t mean the dish is tasty.
There are plenty of good books. But as an experienced traveller you already know that tour guide books try to be comprehensive, and by necessity, put you on a superficial path where you find all the other tourists who are using the same guide book. That’s not how you find special experiences.
